Samsung Internet Finally Gets One of Google Chrome’s Most Useful Features
Samsung Internet is one of the best Android browsers available, offering a great scrolling experience and a clean user interface. Samsung has now released a new beta of the app, adding some highly anticipated features (via SamMobile).
Samsung Internet Beta v188.8.131.52, which is now rolling out to the company’s best Android phones, finally adds the ability to move the address bar from the top to the bottom of the screen. The feature will make browsing the web much easier on phones like the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
To move the address bar to the bottom of the screen, open the Samsung Internet Beta app and navigate to Settings> Layout and Menu> Address bar position.

The other highlight is support for tab groups, a feature Chrome on Android acquired earlier this year. It allows users to organize their tabs by grouping them with tags such as “Shopping” and “News”.
To create a new tab group in Samsung Internet, tap the tabs icon at the bottom and select the three-dot menu at the top right corner of the screen. Now choose the option “Group tabs” and choose the tabs you want to group.
Samsung also introduced a new privacy-focused feature with the new update, which prioritizes HTTPS connections over HTTP. Unlike the other two new additions, however, HTTPS Priority Connection is currently an experimental feature.
Although the new features are only available in the latest beta of Samsung Internet at the moment, they should arrive at the stable version in the coming weeks. If you don’t want to wait, head over to the Play Store and install the beta on your phone.
